NEW DEAL SMALL BATCH
MALT WHISKEY SERIES

This Fall New Deal Distillery will release a trio of 5-year malted whiskeys, staggering their debut by offering a new release in September, October, and November. Each small batch selection explores a very different combination of traditional and experimental grains, giving each one a unique profile.

For fans who are interested in discussing all three malt whiskeys, a virtual Malt Whiskey Tasting with New Deal’s owner & distiller, Tom Burkleaux, will be hosted in November. Stay tuned to our social media and our newsletter for more information coming soon.

RE-CRAFTING AN AMERICAN TRADITION

“American malt whiskey is a category largely ignored by the big Kentucky distilleries, it’s been the craft distillers who have explored the American expression of malt whiskey. We had fun experimenting with some uncommon mash bills and thought it would be fun to release these as a series. We like to put out something special around the holidays and this year definitely calls for more whiskey.”
